Maple Leaf Capital has hired James Xu as a portfolio manager, working out of its London office with a focus on fixed-income volatility. Xu joins from Titan Capital in New York where also he managed a fixed income volatility strategy.

Michael Wexler, Maple Leaf Capital’s chief investment officer, stated that Xu would “bring to Maple Leaf outstanding experience and depth in trading fixed income volatility.”

The Maple Leaf Macro Volatility Fund, with current AUM of US$520 million, trades implied volatility as an asset class with a dual approach to trades from both a macro and a volatility perspective, across commodities, currencies, equities and fixed-income.
